ACAD – Accepted: 2 Corinthians 8

So now finish doing it as well, so that your readiness in desiring it may be matched by your completing it out of what you have. For if the readiness is there, it is acceptable according to what a person has, not according to what he does not have.

ACAD – Accepted: Genesis 32

If we give bountiful gifts, will we not be accepted? Expecting acceptance and forgiveness based on what we have to give. **”You shall say the same thing to Esau when you find him, and you shall say, ‘Moreover, your servant Jacob is behind us.'” For he thought, “I may appease him with the present that goes ahead of me, and afterward I shall see his face. Perhaps he will accept me.”**

Devotional: Love as He Loves

True joy transcends the rolling waves of circumstance. Joy comes from a consistent relationship with Jesus Christ. Jesus is the vine, and God is the gardener who cares for the branches to make them fruitful. The branches are all those who claim to be followers of Christ. The fruitful branches are true believers who by their living union with Christ produce much fruit.
